Following on from the opening event in Sydney, the Vans Pro Skate Park Series continues on to São Paulo, Brazil this weekend with some of the world's gnarliest descending on the incredible looking concrete you see below.
With things kicking off with the qualifiers on the 7th, 6pm Brazilian time (10pm here) and the main event happening on the 8th from 5pm (9pm UK), if you're stuck for weekend plans then you could definitely do worse than crack some cans and watch the likes of Pedro Barros, Roman Pabich, Kalle Berglind, Willy Lara and Cory Juneau tear the place a new one!

Vans Park Series, the definitive World Championship park terrain skateboarding competition series for men and women, continues the 2017 VPS Men’s Pro Tour this weekend, welcoming the world’s most elite professional park terrain skateboarders to Brazil for the second global qualifier stop of the season.
Tucked away in the remote mountains of Serra Negra, Brazil, the world’s finest park terrain skateboarders will meet at the Santo Bowl Skatepark, a private skate facility boasting 360° views of lush green jungle. With three unique sections, the Santo Bowl Skatepark offers multiple transitions, featuring two round bowls with varying deep ends, a center volcano, and concrete coping all around for extensive grind potential.
In conjunction with the main global qualifier event, the inaugural Vans Park Series Brazil National Championships for men and women proceeds on Friday, April 7, providing an open path for regional talent to earn their way onto the official VPS World Tour circuit. The prospective VPS National Champion crowned on Friday will be seeded into the upcoming Americas Continental Championships in Huntington Beach later this year.
